300gb hard drive failure

Tags:
HP
we have been experiencing an extremely high failure rate exceeding thirty percent with new 300gb hard drives from HP. Has anyone else experienced this problem with new drives?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I will be interested in responses to this inquiry as well. We have just recently acquired several 300GB HD’s for our DL380/5, DL580/5.

Please be so kind as to forward any findings.

Thanks,
Eric

    hi do you get frequent power cuts and also do the failing hard drives are lodged in particular bay. I know that there is a bad batch of HP HDDs floating around (HHD 72 GB upwards)

    We are experiencing similar failures of drives on our G6 equipment, and we are experiencing longer delays in getting replacement parts from HP so I am making the assumption that this is not a localized firmware issue.
